You may hear from either your trainer or coach “get a massage”, or “you need a massage”.
That is all well and good but what do they actually do and why do you need one?
This article is designed to cover the benefits of massage and why everybody needs one. There are many benefits.
Massage changes your blood composition and boosts your immunity as a result of the change.
It reduces the potential for injury by ensuring both muscles and joints have less tight spots and soreness.
Massages increase your flexibility by reducing the tightness in your muscle fibres.
They can also reduce stress.
Massage helps you to relax more by relieving tension and increasing blood flow throughout the body.
Massage can reduce soreness and the potential for injury after sport, especially sports where there is heavy contact involved.
These benefits heavily outweigh any particular negatives or negative association that people have with sports or remedial massage.
Ensure your massage is followed by a bottle of water to ensure hydration.
